1978 Gibson RD Artist bass Body detail

1978 Gibson RD Artist bass
Body detail

The RD Artist pickups and associated electronics are unique to the RD Artist. The bridge, however, is the Gibson three-point adjustable combination bridge, first used in 1973.

The pickups are series V humbuckers with expansion/compression and bright mode controlled by the switch at the bridge end of the guitar.

Note the three-piece maple body, with defined patterning in places.
